temperatures fall. looking at 72 in baltimore. 72 in washington. looking at -- i don't know i have the giggles. 63 in oakland. and it looks like we will continue to see the cooler air build in from the northwest. thunderstorms moving long cold front that continue to push into our region. and you can see how the showers and thunderstorms are popping up across the parts of ohio, into northern portions of pennsylvania, to new york state. stretching down to southern portions of indiana. tomorrow afternoon, i would say, take the umbrellas with you, as the chance will happen through the afternoon hours. but tonight looking at clear conditions temperatures right around 71 degrees. and winds out of the south at five to 10. and it looks like for tomorrow, we will see plenty of sunshine. 82 degrees. and then by tomorrow -- it is hard to get through this. 79 on friday. a chance for friday and saturday morning. mother's day 64. and monday 65. i am going to send it back to you guys.

deep right center. montinez back to the wall. and he cannot get it. jeter and johnson both come in to score on the double by tashara. yankees up. and top of the eighth same score. wigginton hit less in the series. not after that. monster two run home run into the second deck in left field. his team leading 9th of the season. orioles trail 6-3. top of the 9th. birds down. wieters with a solo shot to the second deck. in right field. that's his fourth of the year. orioles are down 7-4. and next batter. reimold sends one deep down the left field line. with a stay fair? goes off the pole for the solo home run. his second of the year. orioles go back-to-back. trailing 7-5. later, in the 9th. ington at the plate. flies one to deep right. swisher has room in front of the warning track for the final out. come back falls short. yankees complete the sweep 7-5 the final.
>> hernandez was not on his name at all. his ball strike splits were not good. pitched behind, you know, they sat on his fast ball. he did not show much getting the break and stuff or change up over. cost him. a lot of deep counts early in the game. this was not one of the better starts i have seen out of him. you know, he did what he could to hold it. but not good enough. >> tough line to get through you have to pitch up in the zone. and i didn't make many good pitches anyway. but it was overall a rough one. >> the orioles start a four game series with the twins tomorrow night at the new target field in minneapolis. back to you. >> looking at so
>> final look at the seven-day forecast. for tomorrow. looks like a decent day. 80 degrees. few sun and clouds mixed around out there with a chance for 20 percent chance for a shower. then on friday. 79. with some sun. and then on friday night of the. a chance for showers and thunderstorms leading us into saturday morning. saturday a i think, we should clear up at 75 degrees. then sunday looking at 64 for mother's day. so it looks like a decent day. just slightly cooler compared to where we have been for the last several days. next chance for showers arrive tuesday and wednesday. of next week. back to you jeff and jennifer. >> thank you for joining us
